Vegas Flood-Control District Starts First of 20 Projects | 2017-09-20

A flood-control project underway in southwest Las Vegas is just one of many planned for the metropolitan area over the next several years, says Erin Neff of the Clark County Regional Flood Control District. The $3.8-million Duck Creek project should be finished in February, she says. Contractors are placing concrete box culverts to direct water to other parts of the system. In all, the district is overseeing 20 projects, costing $132 million. Those jobs include two locations of the Las Vegas Wash: a freeway channel on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Las Vegas and the Pittman North Detention Basin in Henderson. In 2018, the district will begin work on a $22-million, 170-acre detention basin, south of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and west of Arville Street in Las Vegas, according to fiscal planning documents.

Tale of Two Bridges: Canada Mega-Spans Face New Delays | 2017-09-20


Major delays in a pair of multi­billion-dollar bridge proposals have handed Canada’s Trudeau government a setback as it pushes to get marquee infrastructure projects moving to boost the economy.

In Vancouver, British Columbia, newly elected provincial officials have canceled a pending procurement for the $2.8-billion, 10-lane George Massey bridge to replace an aging 1950s-era tunnel under the Fraser River. The winner had been set to be announced in October. Meanwhile, initial hopes that a new $3-billion bridge across the Ontario border to Detroit would open in 2020 have long since been dashed. The four-to-five year construction process is not expected to start until 2018, with the deadline for detailed bid submissions recently pushed back by four months.

The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, which is overseeing the new Gordie Howe bridge project, also is disputing media reports in Detroit and Windsor, Ont., that CEO Michael Cautillo was told by the agency board that he is no longer in charge.The authority released a statement calling the reports “inaccurate,” and that Cautillo remains CEO but has been on leave “related to personal matters” since Aug. 24. A spokesman for Canada’s Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities declined comment on Cautillo’s status but said the Trudeau and Trump governments remain “firmly committed” to a modern 1.5-mile span linking Canada and the U.S. “at the busiest entry point for trade and commerce.”

Three consortiums of bidders competing to build the Gordie Howe project were set to submit detailed bids in November. Now, the groups—led by SNC-Lavalin, ACS Infrastructure Canada and Toronto contractor Ellis Don—must wait until next year to do so, with contractor selection not expected until September 2018.

In a twist, Canadian officials gave permits to the Maroun family—private owners of a rival, 86-year-old span—to build a new, six-lane bridge over the Detroit River, connecting Windsor and Detroit. In return, the family must tear down the old Ambassador Bridge when the new span is up. The Marouns have battled in court to stop the Gordie Howe project, although their legal fight now appears to be running out of steam. A federal appeals court has raised questions about the Maroun lawsuit challenging Gordie Howe, hinting strongly that the case belongs in state rather than federal court.

Plans to replace Vancouver’s Massey tunnel halted when British Columbia’s new New Democratic Party (NDP) government announced a technical review of various transportation options. Built in 1959, the tunnel has been deemed unsafe in a seismic event and a cause of traffic gridlock, with just four lanes.

The review will look at not just the original planned 10-lane bridge but also other options, such as a smaller bridge or tunnel, said Leanne Flood, public affairs officer for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. “The review will focus on what level of improvement is needed in the context of regional and provincial planning, growth and vision,” she said. Two of three short-listed bidders for the 10-lane bridge project will be paid up to $2 million for expenses to date, Flood stated, but she declined to confirm which teams—led by Spain-based ACS, Fluor Corp. and Kiewit—would be compensated. Industry observers say the paymens would not cover firms’ proposal investment.

The province itself has spent $54 million on the bridge project, completing an environmental review this year. In a recent report, bond ratings agency DBRS says the NDP government’s decision to step back from the bridge plan, which called for tolls, “adds further uncertainty” to the province’s debt outlook. Any new project “appears likely to be taxpayer-supported,” DBRS said. The NDP government removed tolls on two Vancouver-region bridges on Sept. 1, and is reportedly reviewing costs of one—the Port Mann span, which was completed in 2012 under the former Liberal government. But Flood said there was also insufficient local support for the proposed Massey bridge among Vancouver-area mayors. Opponents said it was too large and would increase traffic, say media reports.

Advanced lithium-ion and metal-air batteries — ScienceDaily

Heavy Construction Photos

University of Central Florida Assistant Professor Yang Yang’s research group has developed two promising energy storage technologies in its work with sustainable energy systems.

Yang sees revolutionary systems that can produce and store energy inexpensively and efficiently as a potential solution to energy and environmental crises.

“We try to convert solar energy either to electricity or chemical fuels. We also try to convert chemical fuels to electricity. So, we do different things, but all of them are related to energy,” said Yang, who came to UCF in 2015 and has joint appointments in the NanoScience Technology Center and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

One of the researchers’ technologies would upgrade the lithium-based batteries that are ubiquitous in today’s laptops, smartphones, portable electronics and electric vehicles. The other offers a safer, more stable alternative than lithium batteries.

Electrode For High-Performance Battery

As recently reported in the scholarly journal Advanced Energy Materials, the UCF researchers designed a new type of electrode that displays excellent conductivity, is stable at high temperatures and cheap to manufacture. Most significantly, it enables a high-performance lithium battery to be recharged thousands of times without degrading.

Batteries generate electrical current when ions pass from the negative terminal, or anode, to the positive terminal, or cathode, through an electrolyte.

Yang’s group developed a battery cathode created from a thin-film alloy of nickel sulfide and iron sulfide. That combination of materials brings big advantages to their new electrode.

On their own, nickel sulfide and iron sulfide each display good conductivity. Conductivity is even better when they’re combined, researchers found.

They were able to boost conductivity even more by making the cathode from a thin film of nickel sulfide-iron sulfide, then etching it to create a porous surface of microscopic nanostructures. These nanopores, or holey structures, greatly expand the surface area available for chemical reaction.

“This is really transformative thin-film technology,” Yang said.

All batteries eventually begin degrading after they’ve been drained and recharged over and over again. Quality lithium-based batteries can be drained and recharged about 300 to 500 times before they begin to lose capacity. Tests show a battery with the nickel sulfide-iron sulfide cathode could be depleted and recharged more than 5,000 times before degrading.

Researchers Kun Liang and Kyle Marcus from Yang’s group worked on the project. Collaborators included Le Zhou, Yilun Li, Samuel T. De Oliveira, Nina Orlovskaya and Yong-Ho Sohn, all of UCF, and Shoufeng Zhang of Jilin University in China, and Yilun Li of Rice University.

New Catalyst for Better Energy Storage

Graduate student researchers in Yang’s lab also developed a new catalyst for a high-efficiency battery that has several advantages over conventional ones.

Metal-air batteries, fuel cells and other energy storage and conversion applications rely on chemical reactions to produce current. In turn, those reactions need an efficient catalyst to help them along. Precious metals including platinum, palladium and iridium have proven to be efficient catalysts, but their high cost and poor stability and durability make them impractical for large-scale commercialization.

Researchers in Yang’s group led by Wenhan Niu, Zhao Li and Kyle Marcus developed a new process for creating a catalyst with a substrate of graphene, a highly conductive two-dimensional material with the thickness of a single atom.

As reported last week in Advanced Energy Materials, they showed the effectiveness of their catalyst’s nanomesh-like structure by testing it in a zinc-air battery, demonstrating its capability of being depleted and recharged many times.

The electrocatalyst is safer and more stable than the volatile compounds found in lithium batteries, and can function in rain, extreme temperatures and other harsh conditions. And without the need for precious metals, it can be manufactured more cheaply.

Toys ‘R’ Us files for bankruptcy protection

(Reuters) – Toys “R” Us Inc, the largest U.S. toy store chain, filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday, the latest sign of turmoil in the retail industry caught in a viselike grip of online shopping and discount chains.

The Chapter 11 filing is among the largest ever by a specialty retailer and casts doubt over the future of the company’s approximately 1,600 stores and 64,000 employees. It comes just as Toys “R” Us is gearing up for the holiday shopping season, which accounts for the bulk of its sales.

Toys “R” Us filed the petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia.

Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

Wall St. clings to records, helped by banks; tech falters

(Reuters) – The S&P 500 ended slightly higher on Monday as financial stocks rose ahead of a Federal Reserve meeting, but the Nasdaq pared gains sharply as technology stocks lost ground late in the session.

Five of the 11 major S&P sectors ended lower. Rising U.S. Treasury yields boosted financial stocks, as higher interest rates tend to lift bank profits, but rate-sensitive sectors such as utilities were the weakest.

The Fed meeting, which starts Tuesday, is expected to yield details on how the central bank will unwind its $4.2 trillion portfolio of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities, nearly a decade after the global financial crisis.

After pushing the S&P above its 2,500-point milestone last week, investors were holding their fire as they awaited more clues on the timing of the next rate hike from Fed Chair Janet Yellen.

“You just had that little momentum spurt after it went through 2,500 but it is kind of running out of steam and is going to bide its time until Wednesday, when they listen to Janet” said Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O’Neil Securities in New York.

However, the Dow still clocked a closing record for the fifth day in a row while the S&P had a closing record for the second consecutive session.

“There’s momentum in the market. There’s lots of cash. Even though the Fed’s about to reduce their balance sheet, you continue to have incredibly aggressive monetary policy. That continues to lead to money flowing into the market almost in an indiscriminate fashion,” said Stephen Massocca, senior vice president at Wedbush Securities in San Francisco.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI rose 63.01 points, or 0.28 percent, to 22,331.35, the S&P 500 .SPX gained 3.64 points, or 0.15 percent, to 2,503.87 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 6.17 points, or 0.1 percent, to 6,454.64.

Big technology stocks such as Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL.O) came under pressure late in the session after Amazon said it would move to charging businesses in one-second increments for use of its servers.

“That competes with Google and Microsoft, and it’s going to weigh on the entire tech space” because of price competition, said Michael O‘Rourke, chief market strategist at JonesTrading in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Microsoft shares ended down 0.2 percent while Alphabet was off 0.6 percent, with both stocks seeing a pickup in volume late in the day.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.36-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.55-to-1 ratio favored advancers.

About 5.97 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges on Monday, compared with the 5.91 billion average for the last 20 sessions.

Beijing cryptocurrency exchanges told to announce trading halt: source

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Chinese authorities have ordered Beijing-based cryptocurrency exchanges to cease trading and immediately notify users of their closure, signaling a widening crackdown by authorities on the industry to contain financial risks.

Exchanges were also told to stop allowing new user registrations as of Friday, according to a government notice signed by the Beijing city group in charge of overseeing internet finance risks that was circulated online and verified by a government source to Reuters.

Platforms should also tell the government by Wednesday Sept. 20 how they will allow users to make withdrawals in a risk-free manner and handle funds to ensure that investors’ interests are protected, according to the notice that was also reported by state newspaper Securities Times.

“All trading exchanges must by midnight of Sept. 15 publish a notice to make clear when they will stop all cryptocurrency trading and announce a stop to new user registrations,” the government notice said.

China is cracking down on the cryptocurrency business to try to limit risks as consumers pile into a highly speculative market that has grown rapidly this year. Reuters and other media reported earlier this week that it planned to shut down the exchanges.

Shanghai-based BTCChina, a major Chinese bitcoin exchange, said on Thursday it would stop all trading from Sept. 30, citing tightening regulation, while smaller Chinese bitcoin exchanges ViaBTC, YoBTC and Yunbi on Friday also announced similar closures.

Beijing-based platforms OkCoin and Huobi, which are among China’s biggest exchanges, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The bitcoin price was down 5 percent at $3,071 at 1036 GMT on U.S. exchange Bitstamp. The bitcoin price index on trade website Coindesk slid below $3,000 for the first time in six weeks.

Bitcoin fell by more than 10 percent on Wednesday after a warning by JPMorgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon that it “is a fraud” and will eventually “blow up”.

“ILLEGAL FLOWS”

Earlier on Friday, a senior executive at China’s state-backed internet finance body said that “stateless” digital tokens such as bitcoin posed risks as they could be used for illegal actions, and rules were needed to support the development of “legal” digital currencies.

Li Lihui, a senior official at the National Internet Finance Association of China and a former president of the Bank of China, also told a conference in Shanghai that global regulators should work together to supervise cryptocurrencies.

“Digital tokens like bitcoin, ethereum that are stateless, do not have sovereign endorsement, a qualified issuing body or a country’s trust, are not legal currencies and should not be spoken of as digital currencies,” he said.

“They can become a tool for illegal fund flows and investment deals.”

He said there should be a distinction between digital currencies, which were being studied and developed by authorities such as the Chinese central bank, and digital tokens such as bitcoin. Digital currencies developed by authorities could be used for good, with the right regulation, he said.

The state-backed internet finance body was set up by the central bank and its members include banks, brokerages, funds and consumer finance companies.

On Wednesday, it urged members to abide by Chinese laws and not deal in cryptocurrencies.

Since January, Chinese bitcoin exchanges have rolled out a series of changes to comply with increased scrutiny by Beijing. Still, the industry was thrown into chaos on Sept. 4 when China issued a directive banning initial coin offerings (ICOs).

China’s crackdown “is all about protecting market stability and protecting the interest of investors, so halting these kinds of initial coin offerings is a very necessary action,” Li said.

Vlad Zamfir, a researcher at the Switzerland-based Ethereum Foundation told Reuters that it was no surprise China is moving against such currencies as Beijing has capital controls that are “in direct tension with the free ability to send any amount of money anywhere without any kind of delay”.

London Mayor tight-lipped on pending Uber license decision

LONDON (Reuters) – London Mayor Sadiq Khan declined to comment on Thursday whether taxi app Uber [UBER.UL] will have its license renewed ahead of a decision due by the end of month, saying that giving a running commentary could prompt legal action afterwards.

Uber, which has faced protests from drivers of London’s traditional black cabs, had its license extended in May for four months as the city’s transport regulator considers several factors including a new fees system which could raise the costs paid by larger private-hire firms.

Several lawmakers wrote a letter this week calling on Uber’s license not to be renewed, accusing it of not being a “fit and proper operator” and criticizing its record on safety and working rights.

Asked about the upcoming decision during a question time session on Thursday, Mayor Khan said it would be wrong to comment ahead of the announcement.

“You would appreciate I‘m sure how inappropriate it would be, bearing in mind that this is quasi-judicial role that is played, for me as the Mayor of London and Chair of (transport regulator) TfL to give a running commentary,” he said.

“If for no other reason, because they would then challenge that in the courts and say that the outcome of the application had been pre-judged.”

Uber has faced criticism in recent months over working conditions and later this month it will appeal against a decision by judges who ruled it should treat two of its drivers as workers and give them the minimum wage and holiday pay.

In recent weeks, the app has announced a series of measures in the UK capital, including the introduction of tipping and plans to stop using diesel cars by the end of 2019.

On Thursday, Uber said it was making further improvements for drivers by increasing some fares, allowing in-app messaging and committing to faster and easier administrative processes.

Uber’s General Manager in London Tom Elvidge said their cars remained a key part of life in the city.

“The app’s popularity speaks for itself with 3.5 million Londoners using it to get a reliable ride. More than 40,000 licensed private-hire drivers also rely on our app to make a living. We want to continue contributing to our city,” he said.

Alaska’s Arctic Road Project Will Likely Cost Over $300M :: Story ID: 36329 :: Construction Equipment Guide

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource Project has been promoted as a plan to connect isolated communities in the northern part of the state.

📅   Thu September 14, 2017 – National Edition

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource Project has been promoted as a plan to connect isolated communities in the northern part of the state, some only accessible by plane, and to develop oil fields.

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource Project has been promoted as a plan to connect isolated communities in the northern part of the state, some only accessible by plane, and to develop oil fields.


Alaska has budgeted $7.3 million to plan the construction of a road network that would extend hundreds of miles across the Arctic.

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource Project has been promoted as a plan to connect isolated communities in the northern part of the state, some only accessible by plane, and to develop oil fields, Alaska’s Energy Desk reported Sept. 7.

The first phase of the project is focused on construction of a transportation corridor connecting the North Slope Borough cities of Utqiagvik and Nuiqsut. Additional routes would be added to connect other communities and oil development operations.

Gov. Bill Walker, an independent, said the road network would make finding and developing oil fields in the Arctic easier because the network would cross the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska.

Building the project’s first phase and planning could cost more than $300 million, the state estimated.

While the full cost of the entire project has not been calculated, it would require major funding that the state hopes the U.S. government would finance.

State Rep. Dean Westlake, a Democrat whose district includes the North Slope Borough, said connecting the communities with roads would provide better access to goods and services for residents of the remote area.

Project opponents cited studies on recently canceled megaprojects as wasting money. They also cited the potential adverse effects of oil developments on the region.

The state plans to begin consulting with the communities that would be affected this winter.

UH researchers discover new form of stretchable electronics, sensors and skins — ScienceDaily

Heavy Construction Photos

A team of researchers from the University of Houston has reported a breakthrough in stretchable electronics that can serve as an artificial skin, allowing a robotic hand to sense the difference between hot and cold, while also offering advantages for a wide range of biomedical devices.

The work, reported in the journal Science Advances, describes a new mechanism for producing stretchable electronics, a process that relies upon readily available materials and could be scaled up for commercial production.

Cunjiang Yu, Bill D. Cook Assistant Professor of mechanical engineering and lead author for the paper, said the work is the first to create a semiconductor in a rubber composite format, designed to allow the electronic components to retain functionality even after the material is stretched by 50 percent.

The work is the first semiconductor in rubber composite format that enables stretchability without any special mechanical structure, Yu said.

He noted that traditional semiconductors are brittle and using them in otherwise stretchable materials has required a complicated system of mechanical accommodations. That’s both more complex and less stable than the new discovery, as well as more expensive, he said.

“Our strategy has advantages for simple fabrication, scalable manufacturing, high-density integration, large strain tolerance and low cost,” he said.

Yu and the rest of the team – co-authors include first author Hae-Jin Kim, Kyoseung Sim and Anish Thukral, all with the UH Cullen College of Engineering – created the electronic skin and used it to demonstrate that a robotic hand could sense the temperature of hot and iced water in a cup. The skin also was able to interpret computer signals sent to the hand and reproduce the signals as American Sign Language.

“The robotic skin can translate the gesture to readable letters that a person like me can understand and read,” Yu said.

The artificial skin is just one application. Researchers said the discovery of a material that is soft, bendable, stretchable and twistable will impact future development in soft wearable electronics, including health monitors, medical implants and human-machine interfaces.

The stretchable composite semiconductor was prepared by using a silicon-based polymer known as polydimethylsiloxane, or PDMS, and tiny nanowires to create a solution that hardened into a material which used the nanowires to transport electric current.

“We foresee that this strategy of enabling elastomeric semiconductors by percolating semiconductor nanofibrils into a rubber will advance the development of stretchable semiconductors, and … will move forward the advancement of stretchable electronics for a wide range of applications, such as artificial skins, biomedical implants and surgical gloves,” they wrote.

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) Xcel Energy said construction crews have wrapped up work on another segment of a transmission line that makes up a new power loop around one eastern New Mexico community.

The utility announced that it has energized a 10-mi. segment of the line between two substations that straddle Roswell.

The loop project started in 2013 with an upgrade to the Capitan Substation to accommodate 115-kilovolt transmission service. Another segment of the loop is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

The work is part of a larger effort by Xcel to bolster the grid across the utility’s service area in eastern New Mexico and Texas. Officials said almost 100 mi. of new transmission line will be built across both states in 2017 and more than 500 mi. by 2021.
